December 13, 2009


— Crews on Saturday found the body of a climber missing on Oregon’s Mount Hood but two others were still missing more than a day after the three set out to climb the west side of the 11,000-foot peak, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

Jim Strovink, Clackamas County sheriff’s spokesman, identified the climber who died as 26-year-old Luke T. Gullberg, of Des Moines, Wash.

All three climbers have been described as experienced and well-equipped.

A search was set to resume at dawn.
